Words can be clumsy and awkward. Choose your own words and your own way of telling a partner. You'll find the way that's most comfortable for you.

"I want to talk with you about something that's important to me. Have you ever had a cold sore or fever blister? A type of virus causes cold sores and fever blisters. I have this virus. Only, instead of getting the sores near my mouth, I get them in my genital area."
"I really feel I can trust you and I want to tell you something very personal. Last year, I found out I have genital herpes. It's not as serious as it sounds. Can I tell you about it?"
I really like you and enjoy being with you, and I want to get closer to you. Let's talk about safer sex."
